The men’s golf team played against Friends Academy at the highly acclaimed Piping Rock Golf Course. Although Great Neck’s golf team is strong, Friends Academy simply has too many talented players and Great Neck wasn’t able to overcome the strong play by Friends Academy. Hopefully, Great Neck will be more successful at the three away games this upcoming week.
The Great Neck North JV tennis team played division rival Jericho this past week. There were exceptional performances by Great Neck’s first and second singles players, Zach Kashi and Mike.

This led to a 6-1 win over Jericho, but these two teams will meet again soon.
